Trial Run Review

Reese Clawson's work is mind-bending--literally. Her company specializes in global data analysis for an elite group of industry executives, and now a lucrative government contract is moving her into the realm of cutting-edge intelligence gathering. She is determined to crack the limits of consciousness--and in doing so, the boundaries of secrets and lies. But her experiment crashes as test subjects slide into a coma-like state. Reese is left scrambling to maintain control, drawing three disparate people into the search for answers--an adrenaline-amped thrill junkie with altered brain chemistry, an Italian scientist working on remote-viewing technology, and a math prodigy whose algorithms subvert 
computer encryption.

Will this piecemeal team prevail when a government operative is sent to investigate? As the threads of perception and reality become tangled and even time itself twists in unexpected directions, one warning remains clear: what you don't know can kill you.

Trial Run by Thomas Locke was a book I had a hard time getting into. I really tried but for me I just couldn't get hooked. I'd read a chapter or two then set it down and not pick it up again for a long while. That being said I still have not finished it. I'm not quite half way through and while I do plan on finishing Trial Run I did not finish it in time for this review. I really want to like this book but for me its a lot of information coming at me that I don't quite understand. I feel like maybe Trial Run is meant for more science loving readers. I am not that. If you enjoy sci-fi I think this would be the perfect book for you. You might be able to understand what is going on more than I have been able to. :) 

3 out of 5. An Afternoon Snack that was to much for me to finish.  

I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Oh, I'm so glad you had a challenge reading this book, too! I really wanted to like it and have tried several times to read it but then would set it down again. I wrote in it that Revell Reads sent it to me to review but now can't find the link or any indication that it was sent to me so I'm going to let this one go. I love Davis Bunn (Thomas Locke) but this one was not for me.
